He was a very good man and did a lot after getting out of the service.
To this day, there are many still trying to get him the Medal of Honor.

yes

One of the best there ever was. Try imagining taking a shot at almost 1.5 miles. Even with a good scope you better know your windage and elevation and be able to calculate in your head quickly. He was the best there ever was and embodies what the Marine Corps is. White Feather is a legend and a hero.

Heres a couple good books about Carlos Hathcock:
Marine Sniper & Silent Warrior both by Charles Henderson,
Carlos Hathcock "White Feater" by Roy Chandler
One Shot, One Kill by Charles Sasser & Craig Roberts, this book is about Marine snipers as a whole but lots of info on Gunny Hathcock. There's a few others about Marine snipers in VN out there too.

A truely great American hero. I'm just a little bit prejudiced towards Marines anyway but Gy Sgt Carlos Hathcock was a shining star of the Marine Corps during the Vietnam war and for all time.

Martin, thank you for giving us another look at that great American. Sure wish I could shoot THAT well. Yes I do....
